“I will not hesitate in defending our waters or tolerate any form of aggression.

“Britain will never be intimidated when it comes to protecting our country, our people, and our national interests.”

Those were the words of Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson regarding the Russian warship Admiral Gorshkov.

On December 23rd, Frigate HMS St Albans was called to escort Admiral Gorshkov since it was to be very close from UK waters, and spent Christmas keeping track of Admiral Gorshkov’s activity while close to UK territorial waters.

Apparently, this holidays season has come along with an upsurge of Russian ships transiting these waters.
